Default Help me Develop rules for Titan (no VDR)Help plz

OK wanna make playable FAIR rule set for my Titan. But still be titan class and just not a large oversized landraider.(DO NOT BRING VDR INTO THIS DISSCUSSION...VDR is overpriced and outdated...go ahead make a land raider with vdr wont come up with 250Pt's)


2 Titan Class Bright lance.........48"..... Str 8...... AP 1....... heavy 2
3 twinlinked rocket launchers w/ Crack or heavy plasma (str 5 ap3 blast)
1 Rapid shot scatter laser ....36" .......str 6.... AP 5 ......... heavy 6
Holo Field.. OR upgrade to Energy Field for 200 pt's

Armor 14/14/14 3 hull points (ignore first 2 destroyed rolls)

WS 5 ...S 10.... Attack 2

SO what points would be fair for BOTH players on this ..Would you change anything? if so what points would you then assign it?

850 the average titan is iirc ~700 pts without weapons, factor in ~150 pts for weapons here and you're good.

i'd let you play with one for about 800 points... but you better expect to be looking at the business end of a bunch of rail guns... ;D

Xyster,what happens if someone takes a Tigershark AX-10 for roughly the same points.

Eat twin-railcannon rounds. I don't care how many fields that thing has. When these babies hit, even at S8 they'll mess up D3 structure points.
Then we have the seekers underneath. Six of them. For an Alpha Strike.

But anyway, ~800-850 is fair, as it's mostly a standard titan, just with fancier weapons.
I also wonder, just what kind of titan is it? (old, old forgeworld perhaps?)

Why not just use the forgeworld rules that are already published for Eldar titans?

Seems like a lot less work and will give you a set of rules that you won't need to beg an opponent to let you use.

It's a Ravenant (albeit the inferior, old-style one), so use the Ravenant rules.

And to pre-empt your third topic, perhaps you can post a picture in the appropriate board and ask "what are the rules for this?".
